5:30 am
good morning. it's friday, february 19th. i'm amanda sanchez and i'm dave lawrence. let's go to lindsey matherly with a look at
5:31 am
this is a live look at the supreme court in washington d-c where supreme court justice antonin scalia will be
5:32 am
he will lie in repose in the great hall. his casket will arrive in just about an hour and a private ceremony will take place. the public is invited to pay respects after that. justice scalia died last weekend. his death-- of course-- is shaking things up in the capitol. our washington bureau correspondent alex miller joins us live this morning to talk about the controversy. alex, senate republicans want to wait to nominate a new justice because their hoping their party will take the presidency in the fall - and democrats want to put someone up now. the president says he will make a nomination, but how likely is it that
5:33 am
it's unlikely anything will get through regardless of who he nominates. but youll be able to tell if the president believes his nominee has a chance by who he nominates. in other words --- if he nominates someone very liberal --- someone like attorney general loretta lynchwe can pretty much see that as a political stunt because there's almost no way republicans are letting her through. but if he nominates someone a little more moderate perhaps an appeals judge that has already made it through senate hearingsthat's a sign he's really hoping change of heart. so alex, what happens to all those cases justice scalia heard? well after arguments they do take an initial vote but nothing is certain until they read that decision. so anything scalia heard but didn't decide on wont include his vote. if it would have been a 5-4 vote and now it's a 4-4 splitthe case will either have to be reargued or the lower courts ruling will stand but it wont become supreme court precedent.

but didn't decide on wont include his vote. if it would have been a 5-4 vote and now it's a 4-4 splitthe case will either have to be reargued or the lower courts ruling will stand but it wont become supreme court precedent. thank you alex for that live report. there's talk that nevada governor brian sandoval, could be a supreme court justice -- and state officials aren't exactly denying it. governor sandoval was on the washington post's short list for a supreme court nominee. during nevada senator harry reid's visit to democratic headquarters in reno, he was asked about the rumor. reid said he'd rather keep his converstations with the governor private, but didn't deny the possibility. a local political expert is saying sandoval's nomination makes sense. s/prof. fred lokken/tmcc political science: this is an interesting rumor because
5:35 am
including the fact that obama would kind of go off the board and literally look for a qualified republican. that the strong feeling is that it could meet the muster of expectations, political expectations of the senate, of a republican controlled senate. republicans have vowed they won't hold any hearings on an obama supreme court nominee, but the president says that won't stop him from naming one. senator reid says he wants to see a nominee named in 10 days to get the process rolling. governor sandoval hasn't commented on the claims. new sanctions for north korea are now law. president obama signed off on the new measure yesterday. the sanctions are punishment for kim jong-un's regime, after launching several nuclear and missile tests -- as well as suspected cyber attacks. the measures freeze the assets of anyone doing business related to north korea's nuclear or weapons programs -- or anyone suspected of being involved in human rights abuses in north

new developments in the f-b-i standoff with apple. the company is still refusing to help hack the san berardino gunman's i-phone. now, other tech giants like google, microsoft and twitter are rushing to apple's defense, even as authorities claim they need to be able to hack into phones to crack cases beyond terrorism. experts say it wouldn't be hard to design a gateway or backdoor, but it would open a pandora's box for tens of millions of smartphone users. you would have created what amounts to a smart, software bomb // that if it falls into the wrong hands//could then be turned around and used to unlock every iphone and ipad in existence. law enforcement officials are frustrated with apple's attitude. the justice department is expected to take additional steps in court to force apple to open the terrorists i- phone. there was a 'ladies night out' event in fallon -- but not the kind you would expect. it took place at banner churchill community hospital, and it was an opportunity to focus on women's health.

highlight the hospitals new women's imaging suite with their state of the art 3-d mammography machine - the newest in the state of nevada. it captures 3-c images in matter of seconds -- with less of a radiation dose for patients. "meaning it looks completely through the breast tissue. one analogy would be you take a loaf of bread and slice it all up and you take each slice out and lay it out flat and the radiologist can see it rather than just looking at the outside of the loaf." mammography specialist, susan cooper says the new technology can detect cancer earlier... and results in fewer false positives. the american cancer society recommends most women start getting yearly mammograms at the age of forty. in an effort to protect seniors in our community, the sparks fire department is starting a senior safety program.
